Floating in a corner
Thinking of a way to take photos that look like you're flying and trying it out, I want to report that it did look quite like I was flying.
I flew into the air at age 40.
Flight photo compilation
Firstly we have a collection of photos of me flying.
My art teacher from back in the day told me, "pictures that look at the whole from a little way away have more presense. looking at the details from close up is thought of as amateur".
Instead of looking carefully at each and every one of the pictures of me flying, I want you to look at it from an angle (even though my photos and paintings have absolutely nothing in common!).
Float even while sitting holding your knees or lying down
Floating full of vigor
There may be people who look at this and think the photos look small compared to other articles. In reality, they are small. It's like a daily portal Z from 10 years ago (daily portal Z photos were also this small 10 years ago. Just for reference)
Make it big, and this is what you get
It's not like I made them smaller just for the nostalgia of 10 years ago. But this is how it looks big.

Picture taking for Daily portal Z
The camera resolution is deplorable. Often likened to the size of a digital camera preview screen, or a thumbnail of a picture put on to a computer.
You get a shock at the opening of the folder
If you look at it from afar it's marvelous, but if you look at it closely, you see the reality. It's like a swan floating on a lake, and I always think it when I see giraffes at the zoo (with the black tongue flopping out and saliva dripping down).
I recommend looking at it from about this distance.
How to take the pictures
There might be people wondering, "What, how did you take that?" (maybe 1 in 1000), so allow me to explain the way to take the photos.
Cut out the shape of yourself in black cloth
You've made your shadow
But the shadow of the human figure didn't really look like it was flying.
This shadow looks more like it would be judged in a witch trial in the middle ages
So I made a round scrap of cloth out of the human shape. The round cloth was cut with a pretty careless feeling, so i'm not taking a photo.
Place the cut cloth on the ground
I was floating to my hearts content, despite the kids behind me. There are many families having a barbecue on the river side on a Sunday, so I couldn't make a real go at floating, sitting cross-legged, cutting my cloth.
When expressing floating in comics, this shadow often shows up.
Even if legs are normally stuck to the shadow
It looks like floating if you seperate the legs from the shadow
A shadow looks like a pit, but you can use a shadow made out of cloth as a pit as well.
A safe pitfall
It looked like Ms Betsuyaku, our writer who helped to take the photos, was floating the most.
It looks like it will erupt after flying
It may be that the crazy old-woman-hair is working. I want to recommend getting a perm to anyone who wants to fly more.
I made a mobile version shadow
The cloth will fly away immediately, so I made it out of a thin plastic board. This has made it easy to carry around. It's mobile. I made sure not to listen to my mind saying "isn't a shadow originally mobile!?".
The slight curve is a worry
I want to take it out and try flying in a few places right away.
Even fly in an elevator hall
If you flatten it down
On the left is a setting of flying, while looking down in horror. On the right it looks like you came flying out of the hole
Now I won't make clear one secret to flying
There are photos that really look like i'm flying, and ones that don't. In these ones i'm not flying much. But when I went to the toilet and came back, I looked at the monitor and got impatient because of the flying.
We took a picture as the "flying edetorial department"
"Better go to bed supperless than rise in debt"… kind of photo
A pigeon getting in the way, then a floating cone (That's the intention)
Is it the setting, or the angle? I want to keep going with research until I find out how to fly 100% of the time. It's the 21st century light siblings.
If you figure out a reliable way to fly, how about making it into a leisure sheet. A leisure sheet for seeming to fly. Already made it an aim for the printing room.
The biggest jump this time was this after all for sure.
Fly in the corner of the periphery
If you really look at this picture, I'm not flying, but when you look at other articles, if you just skim over, it looks like they are.
If you stare at it, I don't move, but I do if you avert your eyes a little. It's like a picture of a stray cat.
